We Believe in the Triune God, the Trinity
— Father, Son, and Holy Spirit

  • God the Father/Creator, who brings creation into existence, upholds and reveals the ways of life that make for peace and wholeness, and ever works to heal and transform life through the power of love.
  • God the Son, Jesus Christ, who through His life, death and Resurrection saves us and all creation from the power of sin and death.
  • God the Holy Spirit, who comforts, sustains, guides, and empowers us to participate in God’s life and mission in the world.

We Believe every person is a beloved creation of God.

  • Whom God created in God’s divine image, with inherent worth and dignity.
  • Who confronts and suffers the distorting and destructive effects of sin in this life.
  • Whom God has reconciled in the life, death, and Resurrection of Jesus Christ, defeating the powers of sin and death.
  • Whom God seeks to make holy and whole, through the presence of the Holy Spirit, transforming us into Christ-likeness.

We Believe in the Church as the community called to be instruments of God’s presence and coming reign of Jesus Christ.

  • People who worship God joyfully, proclaim God’s Word faithfully, and share the sacraments of baptism and the Lord’s Supper.
  • People who welcome and nurture, as God’s sons and daughters.
  • People who are initiated into Christ’s Body and nurtured toward Christian maturity through worship, prayer, Bible study, fellowship, and service.
  • People who are the light of God’s love, justice, and peace; exposes and over-rules evil, injustice, and sin.
  • People who participate in God’s mission of inviting, preparing, and enlisting disciples of Jesus Christ to transform the world and to follow the risen Christ, in the power of the Holy Spirit, into the hurting places of the world and among the outcasts and the forgotten.

We Believe the Bible is the Word of God.

  • Authoritative in matters of faith and practice.
  • Containing the story of God’s mighty acts of salvation in creation, in faithful engagement with people through the ages, and supremely in Jesus Christ.
  • The primary source for understanding the person and purposes of God.
  • Interpreted in the power of the Holy Spirit, present in the community of faith.

We Believe in the final triumph of Resurrection and God’s reign.

  • Anticipating the firstfruits of the Resurrection, made possible through the power of the Spirit and the work of Christ.
  • Entering a new heaven and earth where sin, suffering, and death are overcome and God’s victory is complete.
  • Celebrating with all the faithful who are raised to live eternally in God’s loving presence.
